Alan Martin 2 min 49 sec ago Samsung The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may be no more, but if you want a sleek Samsung beauty with an S-Pen in the box, then the Galaxy Tab S3 is looking very nice indeed. We had a chance to go hands on with the new tablet at MWC and walked away feeling very impressed indeed. On one level, that’s wholly unsurprising: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 was great too , and it would be odd for the company to take a step backwards. But just picking up the 9.7 device, you instantly get the impression that this is a genuine iPad Pro competitor. It’s not just the bundled S-Pen or the optional pogo-pin connected keyboard – the whole thing is sleek quality, if you can stomach Android as a tablet operating system. Image 3 of 23 Samsung Galaxy Tab S3: Features The first thing you’ll notice when you pick it up is how thin and light it is. At 429g, it’s ludicrously light, and from the glass on the front to the metal backplate, it measures just six milimetres.

Nathan Spendelow 8 min 18 sec ago Samsung Hybrids are still a relatively small part of the portable computer universe, but they’re also one of the few sectors showing real growth. They’ve become the de rigour portable computer for C-suite management who want something that stands out but they’re also great for home use. So with that in mind, is the Samsung Galaxy Book the ultimate portable for home and business? Let’s get the basics out of the way first: the Samsung Galaxy Book is an iPad Pro-like tablet with either a 10.6in or 12in screen, along with a detachable keyboard and a bundled S Pen. It’s running Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors, a dual core 2.6GHz Core m3 on the smaller one, and a 3.1GHz Core i5 with the larger model. The 10.6in version comes with 4GB of memory and either 64GB or 128GB of eMMC storage, while the larger one has either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and a 128GB or 256GB SSD.

"Children themselves, girls in particular, are telling us that they feel they need improved, age-appropriate mandatory sex and relationships education to help them navigate these difficult issues," she said. Sexual health charities and education groups have been calling for education about the online sexual landscape for years. In 2013, a report commissioned by the Office of the Children's Commissioner warned that urgent action was needed to bring sex education into the 21st century. "Just a few clicks away on any mobile phone, on any tablet for example, children can find really graphic depictions of extreme and violent sexual acts," deputy children's commissioner Sue Berelowitz told the BBC at the time. Last year, five select committees wrote to Education Secretary Justine Greening to demand updated legislation. But despite mounting support among MPs "attempts to change the law through private members' bills in the Commons have so far been frustrated", says The Independent .

The latter is said to have an edge-to-edge display on the same footprint as the current 9.7-inch iPad. Tags: Samsung , MWC 2017 Discuss this article in our forums

This years Mobile World Congress is well underway in Barcelona and at its press conference on Sunday February 26, Samsung announced a brand new member of the Galaxy tablet family. Called the Galaxy Tab S3 , this high-end tablet is naturally going to be compared to Apples market leading iPad Pro . Weve been at Samsungs launch event getting hands on with Samsungs new tablet and weve taken the opportunity to draw some early comparisons between this new Android heavy-hitter and the iPad Pro. Well be doing a more in-depth comparison between the two at a later date but for our initial early impressions check out the video below and for our full hands on review of the Tab S3, click here . There are some obvious similarities between the two that make them natural rivals: both have 9.7 inch displays, both have similarly positioned fingerprint scanners, both come with a stylus, and Samsung has even launched its own Samsung pencil (though its distinctly more pencil-like than Apples having been developed with Staedtler).

It's been four years since Microsoft introduced its first Surface tablet and at least two since they coined the term "lapability," which is another way of saying, "This device is really comfortable on your lap." SEE ALSO: Leak suggests Samsung is going after the Surface Pro with an impressive tablet PC In that time, Windows system manufacturers have slowly but surely adopted Microsoft's strategy of stuffing full-blown Windows PCs into tablets that can marry with keyboards and turn into lap-friendly ultra-portable devices. In general, Microsoft's designs for the Surface Pro 3 and 4 have been the range's apex, and most partners have offered only pale imitations. Read more...

When Microsoft launched the Surface line back in 2012, its combination of a tablet and keyboard cover (married with a smart kickstand), was innovative. With it, Microsoft surely hoped to kickstart a bit of innovation in what had become a rather stale market for Windows laptops and an almost non-existing market for Windows tablets. Instead of innovation, though, what were seeing now is Read More

During Samsungs Galaxy Tab S3 reveal at Mobile World Congress, it was all-but confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S8 would be getting headphones from Austrian audio giant AKG bundled with it. The Tab S3 has been revealed, and part of the tablets feature set is speakers tuned by AKG, a company acquired by Samsung when it bought Harman (who had previously snapped up the Viennese company back in 1994). As this news was announced Samsungs Mark Notton stated that AKG headphones would be coming to the next flagship phone. Which is obviously the Galaxy S8. Headphones are see as a new battleground in the world of premium phones and partnering with a famous audiophile brand is not new. Indeed Samsungs rival LG teamed up with B&O for their V20 phone, and the HTC Sensation XE came with Beats buds.

The Samsung Tab Pro S was a very competent debut in the increasingly popular, thus competitive 2-in-1 computing space. Now, back with the Galaxy Book, Samsung's latest is gunning for refinement both in name and execution. While it replays many of the same tricks as the Tab Pro S - namely, that its design is steeped in Galaxy heritage - it has a few new tricks that may could perfectly suit those looking for a 2-in-1 that leans in on creativity and versatility much like the Microsoft Surface Book, but one that likely won't obliterate their wallets in the process. Design The general look of Samsung's Galaxy Book doesn't step too far outside the court of what the company's familiar with and good at: packing a surprising amount of power inside of a rather unassuming device. It has the smooth corners, luminescent logos and feels just as good using it as a tablet as it does a personal computer.

Android tablets have been waning since the surge in popularity of 2-in-1s, but Lenovo's Tab 4 series of tablets are an indication that there's still life in the sector yet. With an 8 and 10-inch model, these two slates don't look to set the world alight with breakneck speeds or an insane sales proposition. But these could fill the void in the low to midrange of tablets that's currently dominated by Amazon and its Fire tablets. Each running Android Nougat, stocked with adequate specs to chew through most apps and games, as well as a surprisingly premium design language makes the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10 ones to look out for - especially since they are launching for as low as $109 (about 87, AU$141) and $149 (about 119, AU$193) respectively. Design Designed primarily as a tablet for kids, the Tab 4 range is strikingly good-looking. Coated with glass on both sides, it looks as if it can do just as well in the hands of just about anyone looking for a palm-friendly slate.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 feels like its been a long time coming. Its been two years since we saw the launch of the Tab S2, and that was the best Android tablet out (actually, it still is), so a sequel has been desperately needed. It feels so trite to call the Galaxy Tab S3 a direct iPad rival, as the Samsung / Apple rivalry is a tired trope but given the specs and features of the new tablet from Samsung, its hard to call this anything other than a direct response to the iPad Pro . Four powerful tuned speakers that fire in four directions? A high-res screen and optional keyboard? A stylus? Weve seen that before. In fact, theres a touch of the Surface Pro in the mix as well, as unlike Apples Pencil the chunkier S Pen comes bundled with every Tab S3, giving it an instant productivity boost.
